    HK Police argue that HK Police CCTV is not authentic

    so HK police is arguing that HK police CCTV is not reliable? cannot be used as evidence in court ?

    those folks convicted by CCTV footage will be looking closely at this....

    Scorched earth defence?

    At some point the prosecution will just have to approach the defence and promise them a deal before every case in the history of cases in HK is overturned due to the defence shenanigans.

    I found the fact they tried to argue that the news footage was faked already a bit far fetched, but this definitely is ridiculous. Would be very surprised if the judge were to agree that the CCTV footage is not authentic, so anyone with some trial experience who could perhaps enlighten us to why they even bother making these claims ?

    Because they are paid a lot of money for the time spent making the claims. If I was paid megabucks to do it I would stand up in court and claim the moon is made of cheese. Who is paying the bill?

    You saying that the tax payer is footing the bill ? I would have assumed that the cops are not eligible for legal help as legal aid is means tested and police earn quite well.

    Umm, who do you think pays for the police force anyway? One way or another, the tax payer is paying for their defense.
